Host Your Business/Incentive Events at the Hotel Château de la Côte
For a unique team building or incentive programme, hold your event at the Hotel Château de la Côte, which has ample facilities to offer you and your colleagues a memorable liaison between work and relaxation in beautiful surroundings. We can suggest a range of creative activities that can be organized within the chateau and its grounds, as well as other pursuits in the local region, also known as the Périgord vert. All of our events are designed with you and your team in mind – with several programmes available to motivate, bond and breathe new life into your group.
In the heart of a wooded park of eight hectares, the Hotel Château de la Côte offers all the space you need for a wide range of in-house activities. You are free to use our outdoor swimming pool (in season) – and there are equipped tennis courts, a volleyball pitch, badminton courts – as well as an area to play pétanque (bowls) within the grounds of the chateau. To explore around and about, bike hire is easily arranged, as are horse-riding excursions, which can be organized through many of the nearby equestrian farms.
Some Suggestions for Nearby Sport, Relaxation and Cultural Activities
We understand how difficult it can be to design a programme of activities for diverse teams – which is why our own team dedicated to your business event is on hand to provide general advice and suggest individual activities in the local area, which includes the major attractions of the island town of Brantôme, known as “the Venice of the Périgord” and our regional capital city, Périgueux. Some examples:
Unusual and original Activities
“Baptism by Hot Air Balloon” – or helicopter, starting and finishing at the chateau. Similar activities hosted nearby include flights on micro-light aircraft, in a glider, parachuting or even hang-gliding for the particularly adventurous.
Incentive Activities: Culture and History
In a region steeped in history, the possibilities are almost limitless – nearby there are monuments and museums, historical sites of special interest such as the mediaeval and Renaissance chateaux at Bourdeille, the chateau at Puyguillem, the prehistoric caves at Lascaux (Lascaux II), Montignac and the ancient caves at Villars. Within a very short distance are Saint-Jean De Cole (Village de France), Périgueux and the Roman city of Vesuna. Other places and attractions of particular historical interest include:
- The Roman walk and the famous church (“l’église monolithe”) at Aubeterre sur Dronne
- The city of Sarlat (a major tourist attraction in the south of the region, quite near to Bergerac)
- “The Padirac Chasm” (cave system)
- Many more sites of special historic interest are ready to be explored
Incentive Activities: Sports and Nature
Again, the choice of activities is very wide, so here are a few of our suggestions:
- Courses in rock climbing or potholing
- Horse riding
- Mountain biking
- Squash, bowls and tennis
- Treasure hunting, orienteering and adventure trails
- 4x4 and motocross rallies
- Canoeing, water-skiing and more
Incentive Activities: “Terroir et Vignoble”
“Terroir et Vignoble” translates directly as “soil and wine”, so this selection of activities will appeal to those who have more rustic tastes. These might include visits to established events such as local farmers’ markets where local produce can be seen and sampled – but also guided visits to vineyards, wine tasting, and a longer tour of the vineyards of Bergerac, the home of the famous “Monbazillac” wine.
With many years’ professional experience in the arrangement of meetings, conferences and other corporate events, the team at the Hotel Château de la Côte is always on hand to help you with the creation of an unforgettable business event or a truly inspirational incentive programme.
